Sessions

During the three EPIC days there were many inspiring and interesting sessions. We have made a selection of some of these sessions below. You can browse through the presentations.

Sessions

1. Effective use of digital opportunities: It begins and ends with lecturers

Dorien Hopster and Kim Schildkamp

Facilitated discussion | The COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on higher education have shown us that teaching professionals are the key to educational innovation. They deserve support and opportunities for personal growth, especially when it comes to effective use of technology in their daily classroom practices. The question is: how can we make sure all our lecturers are well-equipped to use digital opportunities in their curricula and instruction in an effective manner?

In the Dutch Facilitating professional development for lecturers’ zone of the Acceleration Plan Educational innovation with IT, 17 institutions are jointly working on facilitating professional development (PD) of lecturers. Several publications and products are developed that support effective PD at all levels of higher education. In this session, we will interactively discuss the above-mentioned question within the following themes (with publications/products developed by the members of the zone):

  • Effective Professional Development for lecturers in higher education
  • Sharing good practices that stick
  • An integral approach to professional development in higher education
  • Focusing on educational support staff
  • An exploration of functions and roles  in higher education with recommendations for practice
